"Pizza Man" Officially Selected and Wins Award!!
'Pizza Man', the latest film to be produced by Set Jester team Skip Erickson and N.J. Mackey was blessed with a 3rd Place award for Short Drama from the Indie Gathering International Film Festival on July 7th, as well, it also received a "Best Supporting Actor" nomination for co-star Joe Estevez on August 1st, 2016.
It was but only two years ago that Set Jester and director Skip Erickson received the coveted 1st Place award for Short Drama at the very same film festival, for the multi-award winning film "Message".
Hollywood actor/writer Joe Estevez penned the short drama 'Pizza Man' first as a stageplay. The story soon found its way into the hands of actor/producer Nicholas Joseph Mackey, who in turn brought it to producer/director Skip Erickson to take the story from stage to screen. Where the Skip Erickson film 'Message' delivered a riveting performance by its lead actress, 'Pizza Man' delivers a dramatic and powerful performance from its lead actor, Nicholas Joseph Mackey. Joe Estevez provides the perfect antagonist performance.
Set Jester wishes to congratulate cast, crew and producers on another successful new film. Cheers to success in 2016!!
